There are three tier-1 vendors selling opteron:  IBM, Sun, and HP.   
HP's have historically had slow RAID configurations, and IBM tries to  
hide them and only offers really one model, a 1U unit.  I've already  
been through buying opteron systems from the smaller vendors and it  
basically wasted a lot of my time due to what seems like quality  
control issues.

So it could be Sun or IBM.  IBM seems to make it harder to buy from  
them than Sun...
